Crews Restore Power in Lake Forest Park, Shoreline

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

City Light repair crews restored power for about 4,400 homes and businesses in Lake Forest Park and Shoreline by about 2:30pm today.

The general boundaries of the outage were 244th Street on the north, 61st Avenue on the east, Wallingford Avenue on the west and 165th Street on the south.

Crews believe that trees near 185th Street and 8th Avenue NE contacted power lines, causing electricity to arc and open breakers that cut power.

The outages, coupled with heavy rain, standing pools of water at Cromwell Park, and the threat of lightening strikes, caused the cancellation of Swingin' Summer Eve, which included a concert, inflatable playground, and Council of Neighborhoods used book sale.
